. . . ( I mean, I don't talk like I write, unless it's about how to do Tensing yoga or some other instruction, imagining someone in front of me... so I'm still learning how to write stories.
See? Now who would try to sell his page with THAT statement? Anyway, I assembled most of this page from pieces of 7 million emails in the late 90's (originally, anyway), when I had the impression that women wanted a totally self-divulging guy... which phase has apparently come & gone... and in any case, I haven't learned to write well enough to make my web pages represent how I talk... I mean, I'm perfect and all, but I still have my vulnerabilities. Really, There's even a "Curious Women" section down the page a bit.
. . . . . . . . .
Ok, now as for the interesting stuff... Whoops, sorry, I could've been bragging. But in any case...
Like, only a few years ago I found out that there are some otherwise very email-literate people in the world who do not know about smiley-cons. The typed kind. [for instance, ";-)" is kind of an equivalent of "<grin>." A shorter version is ";)" ]. It lets people know you're joking, lightening up the situation, or popping off for the sake of silliness, right? Maybe email programs should only be allowed to the humor-competent. I mean, considering some of the things I've written, followed by ";-)," of course... well, it (folks not knowing this) made me realize how dangerous the world could be Ok, EG: Yes, the unabridged dictionary gal dumped me. !:-O!
. . . . . .
In spite of all that, I'd love to be the Capricorn that proves Capricorns have a sense of humor. Still working on it -- especially since that gal (later) told me she didn't know I'd winked in some places that were CRITICAL to her getting the joke. ( Later, that is, when we were breaking up - Oh, NOW you're laughing. uh-huh!? )
INDEED! Yes, and besides that (the deeds), this page has many sections that can be read piecemeal, "sidebars" of this and that, miscellaneous opinions, ideas, stories, etc. Around that, I'm just going to jabber mostly about me... is what you came here for, a personal 'page,' right? (well, I am my own scribe), I mean, like the straight stuff, all beef, the word that ain't just nerd, right ?
(Don't answer that - just use the "hyper" links -or 'Page Down' key- as wisdom directs -- or endure if you must -going on to the 'just me' section ... -skipping the idea section and all the annotated thumb-links to help you navigate this page and this site for the other goodies here and abouts - that I worked so hard on to fix up ... including the run-on sentences! And even some HAND-crafted (and, oh yeah- un-promised!) jokes - like the one just below. ...

Spring '98 in Dudley's Jaw Look-a-Like competition
See that Dudley DoRight JAW? Well, this pic was taken Feb '98 and yes, for most of the years since, there was a beard to go with the pony tail that you also can't see here. The beard's gone (Since May'09 ). Because I finally noticed that the beard hid all the little facial nuances - which gives hints to what I was saying (given my sense of humor). Well, for me, that's like handicapping the handicapped. [Whoops, ok, it has reappeared on occasion, trimmed away from those grinners and, oh, under duress, of course. Note poor over-stressed me at far left - shackled, I tell ya. Ah, ok, it's amber.]
Speaking of hands at my cap (see below) and when I have the beard... see, I was framed, and even had to get help from the vegetated while cookin' up groan's. Ahh-oops, I mean grains!
